Father and son went to Mr. Ben Tulfo to seek some guidance in helping them enroll in college.
According to the statement of the father, “Kami po ay lumapit sa kilos pronto para po makuha ko ang diploma ng aking anak na hinohold po ng Eclaro Academy. Hinohold daw po ang kanyang diploma dahil daw po sa hindi binayang voucher. Dahil sa kanyang paglipat sa ibang eskwelahan. Wala na raw po ang voucher.”
Based on the facts gathered by the team of Ben Tulfo, the student Kit Nevida was in a public school during his Grade 11. He didn’t have any tuition fee to pay for.
But then they have decided to transfer to a private school which is Eclaro Academy. The enrolment teacher failed to inform them prior to accepting the enrollment of the child that he is no longer a beneficiary of the voucher system of DepEd.
The amount of the voucher is P22, 500 enough to pay for the whole tuition fee his Grade 12.
Since there are some things that need clarifications, Mr. Ben Tulfo seeks help from the officers of the Department of Education.
The Undersecretary and the Chief of Staff of Department of Education, Attorney Nepomuceno A. Malaluan clarified the case of Kit Nevida.
He said, “May programa tayo na tinatawag natin na Senior High School Voucher program. Itong programang ito ay sinasagot ng DepEd ang specific amount. Dito po sa NCR ay umaabot sa P22, 500,”

“Hindi siya voucher beneficiary noong siya ay Grade 11 dahil siya ay lumipat sa private na paaralan. Siguro inassume nila na wala silang kailangan gawin para maisama sila doon sa Voucher beneficiary program,” he added.
But they will not let the student suffer, they set up an appointment to make sure that the student will be able to enter college.
This should serve as a lesson to all the students of Senior High School that there are certain requirements that they have to accomplish if ever that they will be transferring from a public school to a private school. It is not something that is automatic. They have to undergo the manual process still.
